July, Frame & Panel Box Project #4: Got one end done..

07-09-2021 07:34 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

And trying to get #1: End done…. There is a dry fit to fine tune. Had to mill tenons on the ends of the rails. Make sure the panel would fit. Shows where the tenons will be….then spread some glue, and chase some parts.. It was getting glued up, whether it liked it, or not…..like trying to herd cats… Meanwhile… #2 End: Dry fit wasn’t quite right…panel was the hold up…was too fat, a hair too wide in the beam, and a hair too lon...

July, Frame & Panel Box Project #3: Out of the clamps, 2 sides get together

07-08-2021 03:23 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Trying to match the 2 up… With side #1 having “issues” was a hair LONGER than Side #2, and one leg was sticking it’s foot out…Tablesaw to correct both ends, rather than all from one end…Clamped the two sides together…. Ok…Not sure if it is #1 or #2….need to fix that edge….beltsander AND a plane.. getting close….had to work on both ends, BTW. Finally got that chore done….removed ONE clamp, carefully rotated t...

July, Frame & Panel Box Project #2: trying for one glue-up

07-06-2021 10:01 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Need to mill a few tenons…so the rails will fit into the stiles….and match the length of the panel.. Set this to the thickness of the panels, to help size the tenons..Wanted a snug, but not too snug fit… Close.. Tried a dry fit….fine tuned a couple spots…then the glue up could commence ( herding of cats, comes to mind..) Creaks a bit, but no “CRACKS”...must be a good sign? Let this sit a day…repeat for Side #2 Fitting the panel t...

Spalted Beech Plough Plane

06-26-2021 05:33 PM by MikeB_UK | 11 comments »

Screw stem plough plane made out of beech & spalted beech More of a step-by-step ramble than a blog but here we go. Lay out the shape for the main body and cut to rough size. Drill a couple of holes as the starter for the handle. Chisel out the bed for the irons & test fit. Flatten the board, testing out the £6 Aldi plane, works surprisingly well as a smoother, tight mouth, needed some reshaping of the handles but a lot better than I expected. Cut the rebate for the ...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #7: Lid re-worked, hinges installed...maybe a PIP

06-19-2021 03:07 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, first things first…clamps came off of the box…decided the top edges needed to all match each other, so the lid will indeed sit flat when I close it…we have ways.. Since this Millers Falls No.9 was sitting out on the bench….might as well use it. 2 corners were a bit higher than the other two….not any more…..same with the slips, and the bottom edges of the box…. Same plane….keep checking until things will sit flat….like the lid...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #6: Slips are showing, round-overs done

06-16-2021 07:42 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

So…started up the mitersaw…and cut four slips for length. Each gets a bead of glue, and a couple clamps….started on the longer sides, attempting to pull the bowed in side back out to straight…then work my way around from there… Some joints were better.. But, always seems to be That One… Oh well…going to be covered with a plywood floor above, and a brass foot below. Set this aside for a day..Removed the 3 main clamps from the lid blank.. ...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #5: Out of the clamps, lid work

Ok, clamps can come back off…SLOWLY.. First 8..only leaves.. The 4 longer ones. I left the spacers inside…as one side wanted to bow in a bit..still, clean up began… Beltsander to trim down any longer fingertips…smooth plane to level the rest…worked my way all around the outside of the box….also, checked on how well the grain flowed around the corners…I hope..Corner #1… #2 (note the fat finger?) I THINK this is #3 corner… ...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #3: Started on the corners

06-11-2021 01:38 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, 3 out of 4, anyway. Decided on how narrow to make these 4 boards..came up with 3-5/8” width…Tablesaw to rip 4 boards to that….squared the ends…wound up with a pair of 8” and a pair of 12” blanks.. Went through and jointed the edges a bit….one had a taper to it..HAD. We have ways.. Fancy Jointer..all because I want each pair to sit together in the vise….so I can do a bit of lay out work…at least on the two shorter ones.. h...

Around The Shop.. #5: Organizing the new shop.. Hanging Tools up Finally!

06-09-2021 06:24 AM by Airframer | 7 comments »

It’s been a busy couple of days here in the shop. I am trying to get all my tools in a spot of their own so I can then go through them and get them cleaned up (again). Over the past 5 years of being stored in a drafty barn they have all acquired a nice coating of surface rust that needs dealing with but before I can do that I need to be able to see them and have a spot to put them away afterwards. That has been my focus so far this week and I am nearly done with finding homes for all...

Time to flatten the boards a bit.. Clamped the narrower of the longer boards into the vise…run a jack plane across to knock down the high spots.. A “Before & After”....and then after the other half was done… Not too bad? Set #2?!https://s3.amazonaws.com/vs-lumberjocks.com/quel2cp.jpg!Jointed the edges a bit.. There was a beltsander in use, as well…Set #3 took a bit more work… Decided to use the tablesaw, and trim this up as a 4-square,...
